    Gets confusing trying to figure out which side the various skinheads are on. A big battle of left-wing skinheads vs. right wing skinheads. (No, they don't necessarily have shaved heads)

    I’ve watched those videos. Wish they wore uniforms.
    Hard to know who is who.

    As much as I detest the racist, skinhead, extreme right, I have to side with them here. At least they're not trying to squash free speech.

    The police won. This is kind of old news because the camp was finally raided at midnight last week. The travesty of the whole thing was that they were allowed to camp there for five weeks.
    They even put the camp right over a rail line causing a disruption of service.

    Another thing that they did was harass a food cart that was across the street and tried to prevent customers from eating there. Now here's the good part. The folks that owned the food cart used the proceeds of their business to help the disadvantaged and homeless in the community.

    I totally blame the Mayor of Portland, Ted Wheeler, for allowing this to go on for so long. He even said it was their right to protest (for 5 weeks) give me a break. He also said that it was the fed's problem and not the Portland Police to do something about it. WTF. Eventually, push came to shove and the Portland Police were forced to take action.

    There's a name for these protesters, It's called "White Trash".

    People in Portland will protest if Starbucks runs out of pumpkin latte.

    We also need to wall off the Northeast (Eastern Block) and those ‘Know it All’ Socialist Canadians......

    I don't know anyone dumb enough to go to Portland, but a word of warning to those who are:

    Be careful not to get them A.I.D.S. on you!

    Well Fred, I just had surgery there. So I guess that I'm ****ed.

    ETA: I was also born there, but for some reason I haven't turned into an Antifa yet.

    Gee, I have to go back there in a few days. If things go bad for me, you might see me on TV rioting in the streets.

    They actually are wearing uniforms, I'm just getting too old and out of touch to know exactly what means what anymore. The uniforms go back to the 60's, at least - Fred Perry shirts (apparently the Proud Boys often wear black Fred Perrys with gold trim), Dr. Marten boots, rolled up jeans, etc. In this case, both the left and right are versions of skinheads, so knowing which is which would come from little details about what they wear - colored laces, suspenders vs. belts, shirt colors, patches, tattoos, would all tell you various things at various times and places. The Proud Boys seem to have adopted black and gold as the colors, sort of like how the Hells Angels have red and white or the Outlaws have black and white.

    A civilized country would have cleared that filth (never to return) out of your way in less than a day.
